Syda Segovia Taylor, Director of Programs & Evaluations; Stephanie Levi, Government Relations Liaison; and Krystal Meisel, Manager of Programs for Project Exploration have been selected to participate in the Chicago incubator for The Art of Science Learning initiative. Chicago is one of only three cities hosting the program. From January to December 2014, 100 people will participate in 17 workshops that use an innovation curriculum and integrate arts based learning tools to meet the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) challenge of urban nutrition in Chicago.
The National Science Foundation funds The Art of Science Learning project that aims to use the arts to spark creativity in science education and the development of an innovative 21st Century STEM workforce.
The initiative is built on more than 15 years of work by Harvey Seifter and colleagues, exploring the impact of artistic skills, processes and experiences on learning and the innovation process.
National Partners include:
– The American Association for the Advancement of Science
– Americans for the Arts
– The Association of Science-Technology Centers
